Collars Up

#Socs #Collarsup

Stream of Consciousness Saturday Banner

Considering its not the warmest

Outside, and it

Looks like autumnal weather is here

Like an old friend

Application of a Woollen Jumper or Scarf might be in order

Really good Duffelcoat or Waterproof to keep out the rain

Something tells me we’re going to need it

Until mother nature allows the mercury to rise – its best to

Prepare….stay indoors if you don’t have to go out – wrap up if you do

Autumn Nature Poetry Seasons Summer

Summers End

There’s a definite change in the air

although he’s there – you don’t see the sun as much

longer nights, shorter days

expect the palette on the trees to change

on the whole – there’s signs that winter is on her way

frosty mornings covering fallen autumn leaves

a mass of crispy leaves amass

under the trees that once held them

to the wildlife its a sign to check the supplies and get

under the covers till the arrival of spring

munching on supplies before drifting off to sleep

night owls staying by their nests

Rush hour III

The trees are bending

moving to a western tune

played by coming wind

rolling autumn leaves

around tarmac cul-de-sacs

to the alley’s end

follow the brown leaves

and you find them piled up high

by a pelican

some decide to rest

whilst others run the gauntlet

towards the river

final resting spot ?

answer to question – unclear

floating down river

Chestnut

#CYW #Chestnut

6th November 2019

Coming from two trees that hold its name

Horse and Sweet varieties exist

Each Autumn kids can be found playing games with conkers

Sweet fare created from the conkers sibling

Tartlets and pies and they’re even used at the Christmas table

Note however – you can’t eat the conker

Unless of course – you happen to be a squirrel

Though its easier if you find one – to plant it for a new tree.

Octpowrimo – Seeing

#Octpowrimo #Seeing

Look down the path – and what do you see ?

cascade of colours moved by the autumn breeze

or cold bare branches, bending in the wind ?

I can see an opportunity

to be the first person through the leaves – before the snow 🙂

Foggy

<a href=”https://dailypost.wordpress.com/prompts/foggy/”>Foggy</a&gt;

For years it’s been a clarion call,

Over the hills and valleys it falls

Greeting us all, with the message

Get yourselves ready, winters on its way!

you may ignore the creeping fog…but the leaves have already fallen

Back of a Leaf

A Simple leaf , on the tarmac and gravel of the car park of #BASIC, the brain and spinal injury centre in Salford.

Fallen by the wind, or the passing of time with the coming of autumn, this humble leaf gave me another chance to create something special.

Been messing around with the monochrome as i continue in the quest to master my new camera.  i like this image because of the silvery veins came popping out – all from the press of a button of my new camera.

Lonely on the bare branch

expecting to fall at any moment

autumn’s arrival – taken its brothers and sisters

fallen and gathered on the grass below

Maroon

#coloryourworld #cyw #maroon

Maybe its

Autumn, that reminds me of you most.

Rich red colour spread through warm tones

of spice mulled wine

or perhaps its the berries and spices

noted as ingredients, used to produce the brew
